Origins Skincare Routine

These products were sent on behalf of Influenster© complimentary to test and write an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Let me preface this entire review by stating that I have never been good at commitment- with my skincare routine. A quick ten second backstory- I never had acne growing up; fast forward to 2011, I tried a birth control pill and broke out constantly until I got pregnant, and only after I had Santiago and Sofia, was when my acne disappeared. Weird. I know.

So now that I am turning the dirty thirty (not sure if I should yelp in excitement or cry) I have decided to take this type of commitment to a whole other level. My skin is currently a combination skin. I get oily in my T-zone and am dry on my cheekbones. I have always been a fan of Origins© products, so when I received an opportunity to test out their products, I rogered up and haven’t looked back since.

The first two products I am going to talk about are the Good Day Good Night Duo. This is pretty self explanatory. I apply the  GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturizer in the morning and the High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Cream at night prior to bed. Both of these products leave my skin feeling tight and supple, which I love! A little product goes a long way, so the 1 oz. tester has lasted me two months so far. I started out with dry skin around my cheeks and I already notice a worthy difference in hydration.

So let’s not stop the hydration there- I have also been incorporating the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I LOVE anything with avocado oil. The benefits are amazing, seriously. After I apply the cream, I apply the overnight mask and when I wake up everything is feeling hydrated! The last product I am going to talk about is the Origins Clear Improvement™ Active charcoal mask. I have honestly always been drawn to mud masks, for. like. ever. So trying an “active charcoal mask” got me cringing. After using this on the daily- it is not that bad. In fact I don’t feel any tear in my skin when I remove the product. I do have my face a little most when I apply the mask but dry enough to wear the product will stick.

I was, and am, still excited about using these products. I have noticed such a difference in how my skin feels and how hydrated it has become. With a good skincare routine, I know I will be crakin’ it out well into my 90’s 😉

Stay youthful, always,
